Five-Year Treatment in Hyperoxaluric Stone Formers
Gas chromatographic methods1 show that hyperoxaluria is common in patients who have recurrent renal stones and that hyperoxaluria may be present alone or associated with hypercalciuria2. When hyperoxaluria was investigated using the absorption of 14C-oxalate, hyperoxalemia and an increase in oxalate clearance were found3. However, a decrease in oxalate clearance was detected in patients with hyperoxaluria of which hyperabsorption seems to be the most frequent cause2. None of the patients with absorptive hyperoxaluria had intestinal disease2,4. In this paper we describe the results of treatment in these patients.
